Softball was invented in 1887. There probably isn't a definite date on when the first regulation was created but (i know it is common sense to run from home to first but) having to run a certain direction on the bases is a rule (technically) so the first rules would have had to have been created the day softball was invented, but those said rules are modified every year to ensure our safety.

According to the rules of the International Softball Federation (ISF), a perfect game in softball is a statistic credited to a pitcher when he/she completes a game and allows the opposing team no one reaching first base.
